Jeff Martin started in the towing and recovery industry in 1989 delivering auto parts for a towing company in Brampton, Ontario. Jeff started performing light-duty tows and recoveries and within a year transitioned into a heavy-duty wrecker. Today, Jeff splits his times as a recovery coordinator, hazmat technician and product representative and trainer for an air lift systems manufacturer.
Jeff took his first WreckMaster course in 1998, hoping the certification card would help him receive more respect in his interactions with first responders. Though he initially took the course for the card, it was the education Jeff received that had the greatest impact. He became a Field Instructor for WreckMaster in the early 2000’s before becoming a Lead Instructor a few years later.
Jeff believes that as a WreckMaster instructor, he is helping add professionalism to the way the industry operates and change the way public, first responders and even other operators look at towers.
